He suggested that by replacing the “?” in dynamic URLs with the hash tag, he would aggregate incoming “link juice” onto his home page instead of spreading it around the dynamic URLs. Rand stated that “the search engines don’t index anything after the hash” and that via his powerful technique, he was “canonicalizing my link juice… in the eyes of the search engine”.
